SPARC Version on CD

Post by leef1274 » 2007/11/08 18:49:18

I have 3 old Sun NETRA servers that I would like to put centos on. I have downloaded the sparc version 4 DVD but only have normal CD drive in the netras, is it possible to get version 4 or preferably version 5 in cd for sparc ?

Many thanks.

Sure download the 3 CD's using the centos-4.2beta-sparc-bin1to3.torrent, sorry no version 5 for sparc available.

Building CentOS 5 for sparc was in the works a while ago. Ask on the CentOS mailing list because the developers are not reading the forums on a regular basis.

Speaking of the mailing list, there is a new post about the sparc version.

yes i do! I?ve installed centos 4.2beta, running postgreSQL + FTP Server (protfpd + mysql + proftpd admin), on a Netra T1. I have boot cd image, if u want it, send me a message.
ps: i had problems partitioning drives with LVM, some kind of bug, installation hangs up after choosing custom layout partition and can't format the hdd. My solution was use disk druid by default

greetz!
